Question
I am in need of a replacement strike ratchet wheel for a reproduction zaandam Dutch clock. I have looked at time savers website and I'm curious if all of the pins thru the wheels are the same length? Also are they pressed together some of the pictures show the wheel positioned mid point on the pin, on the other hand mine is almost on bottom of the pin. Can the pin position be moved?

Answer
I am sorry but I am not familiar with this clock at all.  Identification of the movement is the important thing to know.  It should be stamped on the movement.  If it is a 31 day wind it will probably be made in either Japan or China.  If it is an 8 day wind, it could have been made anywhere but it should still be stamped on the back plate.  When you have this information, go back to the Timesavers web site and try again.  If you still have this question, email them as they are very good about getting back with answers.
